People might think that MS applicants would be busy with their work/research building their profiles after they are done applying to universities. However reality is the exact opposite of what you think. The months from December to June are that of extreme anxiety for most of the applicants as they eagerly wait for their decisions. This is the time period when the emotional spectrum ranges from extreme paranoia to gleeful happiness to morose sadness. Here is what you will find us applicants doing during these months:
Gmail is life:
Gmail becomes the most used application during this phase. Even Facebook is not opened as frequently as Gmail these days. No matter what time or what place it is mandatory to check all the portals and your email 100 times a day. Checking portals before sleeping and after waking up, writing mails to the admission offices. This is the most disciplined we have ever been!
Saying 'Hi, Ssup, Hey' might be the normal way of starting conversations and getting to know people. For us asking profile is the way to make small talk and know each other. It is also the polite way of saying,"Bhai isko admit mila, mera kab ayega?!"
Calls regarding loan:
Email or Portal update:
Getting over the reject:
Finally an admit:
*Drumroll* *Dramatic music*
Out of nowhere there comes a dream admit and that's it. Club can't handle me! Whatever be the political scenario, who gives a damn now. One of the happiest thing that can ever happen and you finally realize all your efforts for the past year or so have paid off!
I hope I get my dream admit too sooner or later! :)
Thank you for reading the post. Wrote this article to get away for a while from the tragedy of rejects and I hope it could entertain you too for a few minutes.
Stay strong and good luck to all of you. May the admit force be with you!
